The Ideologies of Class: Social Relations in Britain 1880-1950

The Ideologies of Class: Social Relations in Britain 1880-1950 (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New edition)

By McKibbin, Ross

The recent history of the working class is essential to any account of modern Britain: between 1880 and 1950 manual workers and their dependents made up three-quarters of the British population. In this collection of essays, Ross McKibbin examines the social and political charact...er of the working class, as well as its relationship with the rest of society and the State. He focuses on such subjects as the relationship of work and hobbies, working-class gambling, class and poverty, and unemployment in inter-war Britain. What emerges is a coherent picture of the world in Britain's social classes.
